Every year my family enjoys going to our local county fair. We enjoy watching the 4-H animal shows, petting the animals, seeing friends that we only seem to see at the fair, and also seeing how our projects came out in the open class exhibits.
This year I decided to enter my sewing projects under the professional category. I have sold some stuff before, and I was hoping that I would be judged harder than in the regular adult category. I was pleasantly surprised on how well I did. (I can list several things wrong with each garment.)
I came out fairly well with a 2nd place for my Christmas tree skirt. A first for embellished item with my 1940's cartwheel hat. A first for my pleated 1940's blouse. Nothing for my 1930's floral tea dress, but I am really not surprised by that. I also received a first for the corduroy jacket I made last fall that never made it on to the blog.
So if indeed I was held to a higher standard, I would say that I did fairly well, and hopefully I will continue to get better. If nothing else, it gives me some reason to brag on my Esty store. Award winning sewing! (Insert Laugh)
Sarah loves to sew, learn more about sewing, and create items with a vintage flair. Her arch enemy is clipping curves, and she has a tolerable relationship with the seam ripper.
